Today, first day of the new month. I got 50.00 in 50p's & the 1st bag had 2 commems. The next 3 bags had nothing, complete skunk. Last bag had 17 commems, 7 of which were 2011 Olympic Games. wow!!!
Either somebody is dumping collections or there is someboby in the bank with too much time on their hands & is sorting through the stock and picking them out.
Either way I don't mind as long as I'm getting them in the end.
Thanks, Merv

I went back to the same bank & got the rest of the bags that they had, only 4 bag but they were as I suspected... NOTHING, complete skunk.
Anyway I don't mind that 'cos I got a lot yesterday & I'm getting 250 from another bank tomorrow, so we'll see what that gives up.
Thanks, Merv

Hi all,
Yippee! , it's Monday & the banks are open.
Somebody has been busy dumping again. I got 50 today and out of the 5 bags , 1 bag had nothing , 3 of the other 4 bags had a total of 19 commemoratives (5 Olympic Games) and in the other bag ... WOW ... 20 commemoratives including another 5 Olympic Games. Some of the coins look as if they have just come out of the mint. I'll take a few pictures & then I can upgrade them into my collection.
Thanks, Merv

Hi all,
Here's a little tale about 2 banks.
Bank 1... does not have a coin deposit machine and customers deposit various bags of coins with the teller & the bank then has to bag them up in larger quantities & pay to send them away. They have got used to me wanting 50p's & some other values and are happy to sell me all that they have on the day. (saves them the cost of sending them away) The other day they only had 2 bags of 50p's, so I had them and then went to the 2nd bank, got my allowed 50, on the way back through town I returned to the 1st bank the get some bags of a different denomination (10p's I think). My time from leaving the bank & returning was just over 10 minutes but in that time somebody had deposited 60 in 50p's so I had them as well.

Bank 2... has a coin deposit machine and they pay to buy coins in & to have the machine "BIN" collected. Would it not make more sense if they got a couple of junior staff to bag the deposited coins then they could use them over the counter instead of paying to "Buy in" & "Send out".
Thanks,Merv

I was robbed... In one of the bags there was 9.50 & a Mauritius 1 Rupee instead of the other 50p. The 1 Rupee is less than 2 pence at the current exchange rate. Worst of all it wasn't even a hole filler...

Thanks, Merv
